Wondering why your D90 has been in a drunken stupor for the last day or so? Blame the Nikon D7000 ($1,200). Though it's not technically a replacement, the D7000's impressive feature list — including a 16.2 megapixel DX sensor, 39-point AF system, Expeed 2 image processor, ISO up to 25,600, magnesium alloy body, 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor, 1080/24p video recording, 6 fps burst shooting, dual SD slots, and 100%, glass pentaprism viewfinder — is enough to make any lesser camera hit the sauce.
Looking for a near-DSLR experience from a pocket cam but not ready to abandon your beloved Canon for that hot new Nikon Coolpix P7000? Lucky for you, there's the Canon Powershot G12 ($500). This 10-megapixel shooter features the DIGIC 4 image processor for improved low light performance, 720p HD video recording, a 2.8-inch adjustable LCD, a 5x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization, a hotshoe, an HDR mode, RAW + JPEG capability, and full manual options to put the control back in your hands.
